This program is designed to provide disadvantaged students with activities that will enhance their preparation to veterinary school. The five-week intensive summer program will begin June 27, 2014 (with orientation) and end August 1, 2014. The program will accommodate up to ten students.
Students will have the opportunity to obtain some veterinary experience through rotations at our Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. Students are also provided resource materials for preparation of the GRE and study skills. Professionals will speak on opportunities within veterinary medicine and career opportunities. Students will be required to participate in labs and make presentations. All students are expected to complete the entire five weeks (Monday through Friday) and all components of the program. A minimum of six hours each day (8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.) will be in the teaching hospital, and two hours each day (4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.) will be for other program activities.
Participants will receive a $500.00 stipend at the end of the program. Room, board and transportation will not be provided. We can assist in locating housing. It is highly recommended that you have a bicycle (with light) for transportation around campus.
